Security officers will have access to about 310 cameras across the city, stationed in malls, train stations, bus stops, parks and other thoroughfares.
All this will be managed through the latest version of Teleste, a security system used in cities including Paris and Stockholm.
Logan Mayor Pam Parker described the city's previous security monitoring setup as "archaic", and believes the new technology will help cut crime.
Already, some footage from Logan city cameras can be beamed directly to officers at the Beenleigh, Browns Plains and Logan Central police stations.
"This is a wonderful tool for police when they're conducting prosecutions in the court because the camera doesn't lie," Cr Parker said.
In the 12 months to March 2015, the council said about 2700 "incidents" were captured on cameras it monitors. This included crimes, drunk people in the streets, people suffering mental health issues, car accidents and burst watermains.
Cr Parker dismissed concerns that residents' civil liberties were at risk, saying the cameras were never fixed on homes.
"If you're not doing anything wrong you have nothing to fear from these cameras. They are there for public safety and I don't have any problems being on our streets and keeping our communities safe," she said.
The state government provided $250,000 of funding for the security room upgrade. Woodridge MP Cameron Dick said improving residents' safety and reducing crimes were two of his top priorities.
